Food Service Announces New P-EBT Program

Group 1: CHFS direct certification public school students – Currently enrolled students who are receiving SNAP benefits on an active EBT card will automatically receive additional funds for P-EBT added on to their existing card beginning this week. Currently enrolled students who are receiving Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or who are in Foster Care, will automatically receive a P-EBT card in the mail.

Group 2: All other eligible public school students – Beginning June 1st for 30 days all other eligible public school families will be able to opt-in to receive the benefit by applying on  https://benefind.ky.gov/ . Benefits will be processed immediately upon confirmation that the student had access to free or reduced lunch.

In order to apply for benefits as part of Group 2, families are required to submit each child’s statewide student ID (SSID) number.  Parents should utilize the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to access your student’s SSID number.  Once the parent has logged in, the student number can be seen from the “Today” screen selection.  If a parent needs assistance with the Parent Portal, use the following link: https://www.infinitecampus.com/audience/parents-students/help-center
